Deputies investigate Lehigh Acres shooting
LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. – The Lee County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Sunday that they were investigating a shooting Saturday night in Lehigh Acres.
The shooting took place near 30th Street SW and Ida Ave late Saturday night, according to LCSO.
Neighbor, Jeffery Jean-Baptist, said that he was coming home from work when he saw his street lined with deputies and emergency vehicles.
“I had to park at the stop sign and walk to my house because everything was taped up,” explained Jean-Baptist. “I was just shocked. I came back from a long day at work and it was something I never expected really.”
Jean-Baptist wasn’t alone and other neighbors heard and saw the huge commotion late Saturday night.
“I hear it outside and I open my garage door and all a bunch of ambulance, fire department, police and all that kind of stuff,” shared Geronimo Perez. “Wow! In this area right here I never see something like that. I’ve been here for almost two years and I never saw something like that in this neighborhood.”
There is no word yet if anyone was injured during the shooting.
